Police Scanner App for WM in Development
In the last few years , we have seen requests for many types of apps on XDA. Among these, there seemed to be a large amount of requests regarding police apps (radar detectors, speedcam softwares, and many more). XDA member Martin25 has started to develop one on his own.
